Wait a minute, I thought I ordered two eggs benedict and one spinach omelette.Miranda: It's all right. I'll take the omelette.Carrie: You know what you guys, this isn't right. We're gonna pay for all this ourselves, all right?Samantha: He said order anything.Miranda: The room service is one thing, but the money - uh-uh.Samantha: What're you getting so uptight about? I mean, money is power. Sex is power. Therefore, getting money for sex is simply an exchange of power. Miranda: Don't listen to the dime store Camille Paglia.Carrie: I don't know whether to take it as an incredible compliment or as an incredible insult.Samantha: Just take it, period.Carrie: Well, I wouldn't know how to return it anyway because the one thing he didn't leave me was his phone number.Miranda: He paid in full.

BILL MOYERS: As Joseph Campbell pursued his quest across Europe for the stories of love and chivalry, he paused often to visit the great cathedrals. They too reflected the glory of love, the love of Mary, mother of God. Reverence for the power of the female is another grand theme in ancient mythology. In the primitive planting cultures, woman contributed importantly to the economic life of the community by participating in the growing and reaping of crops. And as the mother and nourisher of life, she was thought to assist the earth symbolically in its fertility. In fact, some believe there was even a golden age of the goddess until she was driven from the imagination by the emergence of patriarchal authority.
JOSEPH CAMPBELL: It has to do with the earth, the human woman does give birth as the earth gives birth to the plants. She gives nourishment as the plants do. So woman magic and earth magic are the same, they are related. And the personification, then, of this energy which gives birth to forms and nourishes forms is properly female. And so it is in the agricultural world of ancient Mesopotamia, the Egyptian Nile, but also in the earlier planting culture systems, that the goddess is the mythic form that is dominant.

Effie begs Inspector Mundi for an interview with Maladie and discusses the unconstitutional registration of the Touched. She suspects that Mundi is against the hanging as much as she is, but he also believes in order and justice. Effie then notices a photo of a murder victim, who Mundi explains that the railmen tried to frame Maladie, but he deduced that this particular victim wasn't her handiwork. Effie recognizes the coat the female victim is wearing: it's cheap and popular with working women. Effie suspects that the victim was likely a secretary, to which Mundi replies that he'll take her to Maladie himself if she can identify the victim.
Mundi spots Penance in the crowd. As he approaches her, Penance shoots her umbrella in the sky, signaling Nimble and Su. Nimble creates shields as stepping stones for Su as she jumps off the building towards Maladie. However, Nimble loses focus as the other guards begin shooting at him, causing Su to fall short on the steps. With the guards distracted, Maladie kicks the lever and hangs herself. Mundi then realizes that Maladie didn't want to escape but an audience for her to kill. He orders Penance to flee, but she instead inquires about the power lines beneath their feet and notices the metal barricades and the onlookers clinging to them. Just then, the Colonel turns on the power and effectively electrocutes those in contact with the metal barricade.
Penance follows the power lines into a tent, where she finds the Colonel at the control. He throws the electrical control box to the ground and flees. Penance attempts to turn it off but is electrocuted herself.
